Trug and Trook

A trug is something that has long been on my wish list, so when designer maker Geoffrey Fisher sent me details of his handcrafted range finished in Farrow & Ball colours I fell in love with them.  Four different eco eggshell shades are available but they can be custom made to order if you'd like one to match an existing colour scheme.

Also available from his Buckinghamshire studio are these sweet little tree hooks (or trooks), crafted from an old lilac tre.  I love the way old wood adds warmth, texture and character to both contemporary and traditional interiors and can think of so many uses for them, but most of all I'd love to hang woollie hats and scarves on a couple of them in our hallway

Geoff's trooks are featured in the current edition of Homes and Gardens and, along with the trugs and the birdhouses he also makes, can be ordered from his website.
